Slow Intel Wireless Reconnection After Resuming from Standby

I have a T400s with an intel 5300 AGN adapter. Recently, I've noticed that the wireless network is unavailable after resuming from standby. Usually, the connection restores after 10 seconds or so, but I'd like for it to work immediately.

 

I have observed this behavior on multiple wireless networks and have the latest BIOS and intel drivers and am running windows 7.

 

Does anyone know how to solve this issue?

When you put your ThinkPad into standby, any active WiFi sessions will be terminated.  When you wake it up again, a new WIFi session will need to be established.

 

Any WiFi connection will need some time to establish a session with an access point,  so its never going to function "immediately".   10 seconds is not at all excessive for establishing a WiFi session.


Cheers,
